Staff Spotlight - Laura Flowers

We have a chat with Laura Flowers, who joined the team in June. Prior to becoming a Salesforce project manager and certified admin, she was a Sergeant in the Metropolitan Police.

1. 10 years ago, what did you think you would be doing now?

10 years ago I was a Sergeant in the Metropolitan police and thought I would probably be a Chief Inspector, juggling family life and paving the way for women in the service.

2. What quote do you live your life by?

Cherish your yesterdays, dream your tomorrows and live your todays

3. What’s the one thing you couldn’t live without?

A purpose. It changes as I go through my life. At the moment it’s achieving the perfect work life balance so that I can do both to the best of my ability. Also good quality dark chocolate is very important to me!

4. What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to spend time with my friends and family, travel (soon I hope), go on dog walks, play tennis, read, listen to and play music, go to the theatre, bake and watch good TV dramas.

5. What are you listening to/reading/watching at the moment?

I am watching a comedy series on Apple TV called Trying about a couple who are going through the adoption process. It’s very funny and echoes our experience. It wasn’t funny at the time but we can laugh about it now!

6. What’s your previous working experience?

I worked in the Met Police for 18 years in lots of different roles. I finished as the Inspector for Professionalism for the West Area. Difficulty juggling family and work brought me to the Salesforce ecosystem where I have been managing training projects for over 2 years. Very glad it did.

7. What’s your favourite thing about life at Stimulus?

Working with highly skilled and genuinely lovely people.

8. What are you excited about during the next year at Stimulus

I’m a relative newbie to the business so I’m excited to learn as much as I can and take advantage of all the expertise on the team. I’m also looking forward to the Christmas party which I’ve been told can get a bit messy!
